News, Tips, Trends and Miscellany for Book Publicists

NPR Books Watch — 7/24-7/30

For those of you who haven’t yet seen, NPR has revamped its website, so book stories now include transcripts of interviews.  (No more buy links to books, though.)


Here are the NPR interviews for the last week.  Anyone who emails me the imprints of all the books listed (or houses if no imprint is available) will win the NPR Books Grid for the prior week that includes, in addition to the information below, interviewer, pub date, imprint, genre, post-interview Amazon ranking, pre-interview ranking (if the book was mentioned on Shelf Awareness and I was able to look up the number before the interview), and interview hyperlink.
